I stayed here after my original motel couldn't fulfil my reservation - and what a bonus that turned out to be! The Rocket Inn is a small motor court on the main drag through TorC, yet surprisingly quiet. The rooms are very nicely furnished, the bed very comfortable and my room had good TV and wifi reception.

I stayed at the Rocket Inn for a night on a long southwestern road trip and couldn't have lucked out more. Val, the owner, is super friendly and gave my travel partner and I tons of recommendations for where to eat and what to do. We ended up going to some of her suggested places and they were fabulous, as... More

I've stayed at the Rocket Inn at least half a dozen times in the last few years. Nice, friendly, helpful owners, good with local restaurant recommendations and more. Nice remodeled clean rooms, all non-smoking. Pretty good coffee in the mornings. Discounted tickets available to one of the local (and very close nearby) hot springs. And if you're lucky, you'll get... More

We found this hostel at TripAdvisor and staid there one night. The room was spacious and clean, the owner lovely and helpful. The beds were very comfortable, the shower water hot. Its a small place, only 11 rooms, but really cute.

You will not find a nicer hotel in TC, best part is the large showers, all rooms are newly renovated, and the staff can tell you everything you need to know, jeep trails, hiking trails, motorcycle routes, hot springs, best hotel in New Mexico

Aside from the usual lower line chain hotels at the freeway exit, or the big Spa resort facilities for which Truth of Consequences is known, the desert town is not exactly chocked full of lodging alternatives.

This is a nice little place, nothing fancy or roomy but pleasant, and the owner Val is very friendly and helpful. There are picnic tables out front, a nice touch. We had extremely noisy neighbors -- luckily they left the next day!
